the race to the bottom in the currency markets. the euro is at an 11-month high against the dollar and the yen is scheduled to move lower if the bank of japan wants its way, and a lot of people are saying that could benefit gold in a big way which is starting to move higher again. what do you make of the currency wars going on right now? >> i think they are going to heat up and the central players where it heats up will be between germans and the japanese over exports of cars, but i agree with you, and i also think that if we look at how they are going to develop in the near term, i would think that the trigger for that will be when the dollar/yen, for example, gets above 90 and the euro/yen significant levels, and real quickly i've had a lot of e-mails about problems with our bills, but not the ones that you think. t-bills. at the end of 2011 the last time we had a debt ceiling issue we saw bill rates for four week bills and three-month bills start to move up. today we had a one-month bill auction, trading on at five basis points and the auction went off at 9.5 basis points and ma
, the euro/dollar. the moves there off the ecb -- >> what? >> rick. >> look at the dollar index. >> can't hear anybody if everybody is talking on top of everybody else. >> talk about the currency market. that's really telling today, too, off the ecb stuff. >> off the ecb, off the monetary policy committee of the bank of england. the pound is up dramatically. the euro is up dramatically, and even though we're still all rallying against the yen, this is one of the biggest drops net day over day in the dollar index i can remember in a while. it's getting close to a whole cent drop. that's pretty big. >> let me get to gordon. we're seeing a real move up in the final hour. what are you seeing in terms of flow? where is the money moving, and who is buying? >> seeing institutional, again, across all sectors. the important thing is we're starting to see it in the financials which to me is the bellwether of this thing being a real bull move here to the upside, because behind financials you know that housing is going to be behind that, and that's going to be one of the things that we've been wait
of this talk about the euro is bringing the financial markets together. nyse owns four large exchanges in europe. the question is how do we bring this into this consolidation? one way may be to take them public so they can have their own currency and do deals. >> we'll leave it there. so much to talk about. i wanted to get your take about the individual and what's happening in capital market these days. seems like everything is strained. but that conversation for another day. good to have you on the program. >> thank you, maria. >> best of luck with the deal. >> thank you. >> jeff sprecher joining us. ceo at i.c.e. pmt. >>> ten minutes before the close. up next as if apple didn't have enough problems, now the company's iphone may no longer be considered cool for young people. that could be bad news for apple. we're going to take a look. >>> then preet bharara is here. remember this from last year's conference? >> i know you told me there were going to be a lot of people here from the hedge fund industry and other folks, i didn't appreciate how many people so i wanted to apologize in ad
whose printing press is faster. breached 120 on the euro, a big deal. breached 90 on the dollar/yen so the japanese are definitely devaluing their currency, but to be fair, it was just last year that the dollar reached a record low on the end, so if you take a wide enough view, you know, the japanese aren't mistaken, say, and they are just trying to price it more accurately. the problem is once this machine gets going of printing and weakening, how does it ever stop? >> yeah. how much of this rally lately that we've been talking about here has been fundamental and how much is just the greasing by the fed, do you think? >> well, look, i think the liquidity backdrop is the ultimate context where all the rest is going on. we've had bad enough economic scares with this much or almost this much central bank liquidity where the market had no trouble not going up, so i don't think it can be explained by one thing or another. talking about five-year highs, since april 2nd of next year up less than 5%, not necessarily as if we've torn our way to some massive runaway gains. i feel like we're jus
trades could have been, and they were. whether it's euro/yen, dollar/yen. if you want to know why our stock market is doing well, look at this chart. a chart of one year of the nikkei and obviously something magical happened towards the end of last year. look how the stock market took off and connect the dots with the transcripts, ben bernanke's advice given a decade plus going to the japanese was definitely put in place, the liquidity programs, the quantitative easing, the monetizing and look what happened to their stock market, and if you also look at what happened to the jgb, briefly, they shot up in yield. it's moderated a bit. kyle bass is on today with david faber and everybody loves kyle bass. >> right. >> he talked about the first black swan with all the central banking activity probably turns out to be japan. we don't know when. i would fully agree and i think these two charts give you some clues that there is a possibility. >> andres, what do you think? is japan back? >> well, i think to a certain extent the unintended consequences is what we're actually going to see in the
. if you part a chart of the euro currency over mcdonald's in the last few weeks, almost been an identical chart. that's because they are so europe-focused. i continue to believe europe has too many problems and far too many currencies risks for mcdonald's. coke is concentrated exactly where you want to be which is latin america. just this week the mexican stock market hit an all-time high. the latin america market for coke is bigger than the united states, twice as big as europe. between these two companies you want to bet on latin america and coke, not europe and mcdonald's. >> well, i'll tell you, the entire trend and industry is moving away from the sugary drinks, and you saw that beverage sales in the u.s. were down 2.8% last year. we need to start moving towards the healthier drinks. that's what the consumer wants. now mcdonald's, albeit not the healthiest restaurant, but look what they are doing. they already were in the business of soft drinks. now they are moving. mr. fields, when he stepped down, he was an innovator and kept bringing new products to market and that's what mcdonal
